|Thriller Steer at Roger Patterson's - He's real good!|
|Ayash Farms - They'll have a large set of Lautner calves next year!|
|Part of Bartenslager cow herd! They will have a very large set of Lautner sired calves next year!|
|Heatwave Heifer - Dean Hansen|
I had a great day in West Virginia yesterday looking at over 150 calves. Unfortunately due the extreme heat I didn't get as many pictures as I hoped. The cattle wanted to stay in the shade or in the mud. The ones I did get certainly don't represent the calves at their best, but they show their quality. Roger Patterson, Dean Hansen, and Zach Bartenslager have a stout set of calves. My picks were Roger's Thriller Steer, Dean's Heatwave heifer, and Zach had a really impressive Monopoly heifer out of his Full Flush x 602G donor!
Be sure to check these producers calves out. Next year between these three breeders there will be close to 75 Monopoly sired calves! Wow I can't wait to see those babies!
Thanks again to Roger Patterson for showing me around all day! I appreciate it.
